External blower size
I'm looking into an Abbaka external blower. My run is 16 ft, with a 45 and 90 elbow required. I'm going to buy a bluestar 36" 6 burner rangetop with 98K BTU's. I'll use a 42" hood. That comes to 1230 cfm if all burners are on high at the same time. I know I will rarely cook like that, but will run the two high burners at the same time sometimes, I'm sure.
The decision I have to make is whether to buy the 1000cfm blower and save myself about $800 or go with the 1400cfm blower. If I use 10" duct with the 1000cfm blower, would that bump me up to an acceptable system? I know the requirements indicate the larger blower, but cost is a consideration and I just don't want overkill.
I'm sure it's subjective, but opinions will help make the decision. Would also like reviews of the Abbaka blowers and MonderAire liners. Thanks much for your time.
